I am so excited to bring you my 2020 Yarn Advent Calendars!
I will be including a printed copy of Ambah O'Brien's new ADVENTuresome Wrap as part of your kit, and I am designing the yarn colorways to look fabulous with her pattern.
I don't want to give away too much about the colorways because the surprise is part of the fun, but I will tell you that they will be colors you can wear all year long and that there will--of course--be speckles. ;-)
You will receive 24 individually wrapped 10 gram sock-weight mini skeins as well as a full-sized skein. Each skein will be numbered, and the idea is to open one skein every day starting on December 1st and ending on Christmas Day.
You have two separate choices to make. For the mini skeins, you can choose between Comfy Sock and Shimmer Sock. Shimmer Sock has stellina sparkle while Comfy Sock is a nice round 4-ply with no sparkle.
For your full-sized skein, you can choose from among Sock Perfection, Sparkly Merino Sock, and So Silky Sock.
Between the minis and the full-sized skein, you can choose no sparkle, some sparkle, or all sparkle depending on your preferences.
Below you can see the info about each yarn base choice.
Choices for Your Minis
Comfy Sock Minis - This is a lovely soft and plump 4-ply sock-weight yarn made of 100% superwash merino. Each 10 gram mini has 43 yards, so your 24 minis will come to a total of 1032 yards.
Shimmer Sock Minis - This is a soft 2-ply sock-weight yarn made of 75% superwash merino, 20% nylon, and 5% stellina, so if you want a little sparkle in your yarn, this one is perfect. Each 10 gram mini has 43 yards, so your 24 minis will come to a total of 1032 yards.
Choices for Your Full-Sized Skein
Sock Perfection - Sock Perfection is a 4-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The merino used is extra soft, so this yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, and more. Each 100 gram skein has 450 yards.
Sparkly Merino Sock - This yarn is a 4-ply made with 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. The sparkle is fabulous and shows beautifully the darker the color is. Each 115 gram skein has 409 yards.
So Silky Sock - This yarn is a 4-ply made of 50% superwash merino and 50% silk. It's wonderfully strong and amazingly soft. Each 100 gram skein contains 437 yards. If you would like to add a luxury feel to your project, this is one to choose.
No Full-Sized Skein - If you are planning to use a different pattern for your Yarn Advent Calendar and you don't need the full-sized skein, you are welcome to order just the twenty-four 10 gram minis.
Due to some international shipping issues because it's 2020, I will only be shipping to Canada and within The United States this year. My apologies to the rest of the world! I just don't want to risk having your package stuck in customs.
If you live inside The United States, I will be shipping your Yarn Advent Calendar by November 20th, and the last date to order will be November 1st.
If you live in Canada, I will be shipping your Yarn Advent Calendar by October 20th, and the last date to order will be October 1st. If you order after October 1st, I will happily dye the yarn for you, but your kit may not arrive by December 1st.
If you order other items when you order your Advent Calendar, I'll send your whole order when I ship your Advent calendar. If you would like your other items sooner, please order them separately, and I will ship them right away as usual.
Ordinarily, I am happy to cake your yarn for you. Unfortunately, I won't be able to do it for the Yarn Advent Calendar kits due to time constraints.
